Antibacterial drugs are the compounds that are used against the bacteria which work by either inhibiting their growth of by killing them. Many classes of antibacterial drugs have been developed and are available according to their chemical nature, range of activity, and method of action. An increase in the incidences of infectious diseases resulting in the rise in the demand for antibacterial drugs is driving the market growth. Factors such as a rise in incidences of infectious diseases, growing healthcare spending, modernization of the healthacre infrastructure, and improving diagnosis rate are the major factor driving the growth of the market. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 30 new infections have been estimated to have emerged in the last two decades, which threaten the health of millions of individuals.

Moreover, an increase in the frequencies of zoonotic diseases is also propelling the growth of the market. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in 2017, estimated that 3/4th of new or emergent infectious diseases in society come from animals. In addition, the growth of the market is also expected to be boosted by the multidrug-resistant bacteria known as superbugs. The overall growth of the market is rising due to factors such as significant investments in R&D activities, a rise in the incidences of infectious diseases, and zoonotic disease outbreaks.

However, stringent regulatory guidelines, resistance to the antibacterial drugs developed by the bacteria,  and high cost of drug approval are projected to obstruct the market growth.

Key Market Driver -

Rise in incidences of infectious diseases and zoonotic diseases.

Key Market Restraint -

Stringent regulatory guidelines and high cost of drug approval.
